It was bothering me how uncomfortable and stiff Damon was while around people in this episode and it’s so clear now how he doesn’t think he is worthy to be next to Elena, Stefan, Aaron, Enzo and everybody else… Everywhere he looks, he listens how terrible he is, every side he turns, his past catches up with him.
His self loathing nearly paralyzed him in this episode, he was fighting every minute too look cool and unaffected when inside he was being crushed by his guilt, pain, hate.
And what he did at the end, was terribly selfless. Elena is his life, but he hates himself so much and he loves her so much that he sacrificed everything because he couldn’t bear she becoming like him, because of him.
He can’t stand the thought that he would ruin her like he ruined Enzo.
That wasn’t really a break up. Damon was doing what he thought was best for Elena. He didn’t want to corrupt her because he thinks he’s all bad. He just has to see that Elena loves him for who he is. No matter what he’s done, she’ll always love him. So yes there is a little bump in the road but I’m positive it’s nothing Delena can’t conquer.
"Because you are… my life."
Just gonna point out that when Elena broke up with Stefan, she didn’t even shed a tear
But when Damon said he’s letting her go, she fucking cried on THEIR couch
